So today we are discussing grief. How do we react when a loved one dies? Some people shout and scream, some cry, while others remain silent while their insides are tearing apart. But however you experience grief, it still comes down to the fact you are all suffering. There are many ‘stages’ a person goes through when they grieve.
The first is denial. Refusing to believe it’s happened, waiting for that door to open and the one you have lost walk in.
Then comes anger. The feeling of injustice that it’s happened. You blame everyone, even yourself. If only...
Then depression hits. You realise that nothing ‘s going to bring them back. The hole of despair you’re hurtling down is dark and frightening.
Then finally comes, acceptance. When you accept they have gone, love them still, but move on with your life.
To those I’ve spoken to on the other side of life. They go through more or less the same thing, except they have the opportunity to visit the living when they are healed. Some spirit people remain angry for a long time, because they feel they have died too soon. Before their time. They go through all the same stages of grief that the living do. They feel the same pain of losing their loved ones.
Others are surprised they’re free of illness or disabilities that plagued them when alive. They feel reborn, full of life and vitality. Because, no matter what the condition of the physical body, the spiritual body will always be whole. I believe that’s why some amputees can still feel their missing limbs. They are feeling their spiritual body.
Grief is a powerful emotion. It can immobilise you, crush you, turn you into someone you don’t recognise anymore. But there is always a light shining in the darkness for you. Waiting and helping you to heal your broken heart. Ask for help. The angels cry with you and feel your grief too. But they will support you when you feel your legs cannot, they will hold you in their arms, when you feel lost and alone and they will walk beside you all your life, guiding you towards your goals and aspirations.
Never think that you're alone. An angel is always by your side.
What we do
Connections With Spirit is owned by Margaret West, a lady of many talents. You can find her website here At Connections with spirit, we offer you training in many different practitioner courses and also many other metaphysical studies. The workshops are designed to not only enlighten you, but also to financially help those she considers are voiceless, with profits from the workshops. Margaret works full time as an alternative Therapist, and this she considers is her income to pay the bills. Profit from the workshops, after paying the facilitators etc, is donated. The prices for our workshops are reasonable and competitive, and we like to think that we give each one our personal touch of beauty and laughter. Cake is always on offer at lunchtimes, as we feel no one should learn without a good slice of cake to fortify them!! We use a few facilitators, who are excellent in their field, but mainly Margaret does all the teaching. So you can be assured that the quality of our courses are always top notch.We also have stalls at the workshops where you can buy beautiful jewellery and Holistic Crystal pendants, which Margaret makes herself. Each pendant is an active crystal that will help with various conditions of the mind, body and spirit.Emma King is Connections with spirit's event manager, events organiser and Personal Assistant to Margaret West.
